As part of the Schools Capital Programme, I am also happy that the need for a new Secondary School for Enfield is now accepted and to be studied. This is something I have worked hard on, with the support of local Councillor Enda Flynn, and former Councillor Willie Carey.
Enfield is included under the category ‘other areas where additional provision may be required’. A range of areas nationwide are experiencing increased demographic pressure and will be kept under ongoing review. At post-primary level, it is apparent at this point that this ongoing demographic analysis will include areas such as Enfield (Kilcock feeder area). Additional provision may be required post 2018 based on this ongoing analysis. I am glad that Enfield is now recognised as an area under consideration given the growth in primary school pupils in the town and its environs.
